New study reveals the impact sleep can have on weight management.

Nedeltcheva AV et al. have just reported in Ann Intern Med (2010 Oct 5; 153:435) that getting adequate sleep is a vital part of any weight loss programme: calorie-restricted participants who got adequate sleep lost more fat than lean.

Nedeltcheva AV et al. conducted this study to determine whether “sleep loss can modify energy intake and expenditure”. More information on this study can be found here.
